|New World- is crafted with care to inspire the spirit of discovery in us all. In contrast to old world (European) cider, New World is made with a blend of American heirloom varieties: Baldwin, Northern Spy, Russetts, and others. New World has the layered complexity to satisfy the most discerning palates while still being accessible to casual cider drinkers, wandering off the beaten path. ||Crafted for the uninhibited, Wild Thing is our session cider, made with a blend of heritage and late season dessert apples. Spontaneous wild fermentation adds complexity and a touch of hops provides balance. The result is a juicy, easy drinking cider that is not too sweet and a perfect complement to hearty foods and long days. ||Made with apples from West County Cider's Catamount Hill Orchard, COLRAIN is an homage to the region where the fruit is grown. Heirloom apples combined with a touch of spice and maple syrup harvested from adjacent maple trees. It's a New England cider, made anew with a sense of place. Colrain has the tannic complexity that comes from traditional cider apples, while still remaining balanced and accessible. This is a cider with deep Western Massachusetts roots.|

Hard A Lee- is named after a little wooden boat that’s been in our family for 90 years. Simple in appearance yet built by the famous naval designer John Alden, her name is a nautical term that one bellows when about to tack – pushing the tiller to the leeward side of the boat to head in a new direction. So as they say, if you’re “ready about, Hard A Lee!” Martha's Vineyard Cider Co. is proud to share this with you.

|Original Blend is the Auerbach to our Celtics, the Satisfaction to our Stones, the Agent K to our Men In Black, our foundation. From its humble beginnings in the basement of a Bates College dormitory, Original Blend is the result of hundreds of test batches aimed at crafting the best damn hard cider you've ever tasted. Original Blend is made from freshly pressed local apples because we not only believe in high quality cider, we believe in America. We use a secret blend of Red Delicious, McIntosh, Cortland, and Gala apples, and NEVER add concentrate, artificial flavors or sweeteners. ||Cranberry Blend- A lot of cranberries grow in Massachusetts and an unnamed member of Downeast Cider has an affinity for them, dried cranberries, cranberry juice, and most of all, Cranberry Blend. This interesting twist on Original Blend won't make your lips pucker but will bring a smile.|
|Unoriginal Blend- After three years of ignoring all traditional forms of making hard cider, we gave in. We looked to those who had been making cider for hundreds, if not thousands, of years and learned from them. We ferment fresh-pressed juice with champagne yeast, filter for a clean flavor, and add a touch of honey. This departure TO the norm is a Downeast departure FROM the norm. Unoriginal is clear and crisp with very little residual sweetness. ||Seasonal Blends- Hard Honey, Lemonade, Pumpkin Blend, Winter Blend|
Artifact Cider Project- is a micro-ciderhouse based in Western Massachusetts. The Project is a tribute to the rich history of American cider, especially in Massachusetts. Our project is to revive, reinvent, and reintroduce American craft cider. We start with fresh apples, not concentrate or apple flavoring, because we believe the best apples are grown by our local Massachusetts orchards and the best apples make the best cider. Every apple, even of the same variety, is grown under different conditions, varying from year to year, and from orchard to orchard. That makes each apple and each batch of cider distinct and unique. So, while our cidermaking process is modern and scientific, it's not formulaic. It also requires a healthy dose of art and faith. To us, that’s craft cider. We hope you enjoy the result.
Headwater Cider Company makes cider in the New England style. New England Style cider is described as the only cider style originating in the USA. It is dry, and the alcohol is higher due to the added sugar. The aroma is clear and subtle. The acidity provides a strong backbone that is smoothed through bottle aging.The product is delicious: A crisp, dry cider with just a hint of orchard sweetness.The apples are grown at the orchard in Hawley, MA. They are pressed, fermented, and bottled in our cider mill at the heart of the orchard. We grow our own apples, including Cortland, McIntosh, and Empire. Newly added varieties grown include Medaille D'Or, Liberty, Nova Spy, Alkmene, and Golden Nugget.

Cisco Brewers- Here on Nantucket we have a Winery, Brewery, and Distillery. Nantucket Vineyard was the first arm of our business opening in the early 1980’s as a small project of the Long Family. After a few years, Winery employees ended up falling in love with the wine and each other, and voila! – Cisco Brewers was born on the Hudson’s stovetop in 1995. Whispers of a brewery floated on the Nantucket wind, catching the ear of a few people, including a Mr. Harman. Using the previously tested and proven formula of starting a business from another business, Winery and Brewery employees enjoyed a few glasses / pints (respectively) together and hatched the idea for Triple Eight Distillery in 2000. All three businesses are constantly evolving, and we now produce a wide variety of world-class wines, beers, and spirits. Come out and enjoy our Nantucket haven- just prepare yourself in case your mind blows up from all the awesomeness.

|Dry Baldwin- A single variety cider, it is fermented to dryness making a traditional New England cider. Crisp.||Pippin Cider- First an explanation. Tremletts Bitter and Yarlington Mill are classic English bittersweets. They were high on the list of apples recommended to us in the early 1080's by R. R. Williams of the Long Ashton Cider Research Station in England.||Farmer's Favorite- Hazy, dense, with sharp & tannic richness, this cider should stand up to a table full of good food from local New England dirt. Aston's Bitter, Yarlington Mill, Ellis Bitter are the apples... Vibrant, dry.|
|Kingston Black- Dark red, dense fleshed, with anise over-tones, Kingston Black is perhaps the most well known but least tasted English cider variety. It is frequently described, with the term ‘legendary’ usually tacked on, as the most wine-like of ciders.||Reinne De Pomme- Reine de Pomme is an archaic French Apple. We found it in the Geneva Reference Orchard. In 1987, in France, the only reference to it we found was a listing in a nursery catalog from the 1920’s at an apple museum in Normandy. No one seemed to know of it. But, forgotten or not, we were struck by the taste- tannins and iron- that made it inedible, but intriguing for a cider. As a cider it has a deep, dark-fruit, honeyed taste.||Catamount Hill Orchard- This cider is made from apples grown in our home orchard on Catamount Hill in Colrain. There are over 20 apple varieties in this cider. Our orchard is a small cornicopia of obscure apples,grown to experience the potential of heritage & cider varieties. |
|Queen's Cider- Mid-dry, with overlay of soft tannins. This cider is made from the Newtown Pippin apple, first discovered in Flushing, Queens —New York City!— in the 1700s. As 'Albemarle Pippin', it pleased G.Washington, T.Jefferson & others of the past.||Golden Delicious- John Wheeler grew these Golden Delicious apples at Wheel-View Orchard in Shelburne, Ma. We picked them the last week of October and fermented the juice with wild yeast.||Redfield- We found the Redfield on a leisurely walk through the reference orchard at the New York Agricultural Experimental Station at Geneva. We were sampling apples as we walked, taking a bite, and then tossing them. The Redfield stopped us cold. There was the taste: unusually tannic, bright fruit, and acidic. Then there was the color: deep red skin, brilliant scarlet flesh. We picked enough for a test batch, and have been planting and making Redfield ever since.|
|McINTOSH- McIntosh is the mainstay apple of New England. Juicy and aromatic, it balances sweetness and acidity. This cider is sweet and fruity, with a low alcohol after a very short fermentation.|
Bear Swamp Orchard, Organic Farmhouse Style Cider- Real old fashioned homemade cider. Organic apples we grow, and wild yeasts (no commercial strains), no sulfites, no preservatives, no filtering, no sweeteners, not from concentrates, mostly still (no carbonated, maybe some bottle conditioned occasionally), the real deal. We approach our hard cider the same way we approach the rest of our orchard products and growing in general, with a nod back to a simpler, unprocessed, “Real food” way of living. We are not looking for the year to year, batch to batch consistency expected by many larger cider makers. We embrace seasonal and regional differences by using our apples, and the wild yeasts from our orchard to make a cider that can really only be created here. We forego some of the modern approaches and try to keep our equipment and procedures as simple as possible.
Carr's Ciderhouse- Carr’s Ciderhouse- is a family-run operation committed to handcrafting small batch, barrel-aged hard ciders as well as apple cider-based products for the pantry. Our historic orchard is located on the northwest slope of Mt. Warner in Massachusetts, overlooking the breathtakingly beautiful Connecticut River valley. It has been eight years in the making (twice that, if you count dreaming) and we are so pleased to launch our line of hand-made, barrel-aged, small-batch hard cider. Our young orchard of 1500 apple trees was planted in 2007 on the north-west slope of Mount Warner in North Hadley, Massachusetts. It’s just beginning to yield now! We press our apples on a refurbished century-old Mount Gilead cider press (one of the oldest working presses in New England, we suppose) in the ciderhouse on the hillside when the weather starts turning cold. It’s usually December by the time we finish pressing and we let the juice freeze naturally and stay that way until we are ready to begin fermentation.
Harpoon Brewery- We started the Harpoon Brewery in 1986 because—like today—we loved beer and wanted more quality choices. There was only one problem: we were beer lovers, not brewers. We knew what we wanted to drink, but we needed some help actually brewing it. So we enlisted our first brewer, took over some warehouse space on the Boston waterfront, and began introducing fresh, local craft beer to Boston drinkers. We tried to do it in a way that captured the spirit of fun that had brought us to beer in the first place. From that warehouse, surrounded by fish companies on the docks of South Boston (neighboring what is now the Seaport District), we couldn’t imagine that craft brewing would become what it has today.
DownEast Cider House- was founded by Ross Brickman and Tyler Mosher during their senior year of college. Through their travels abroad, they took notice of the large presence of hard cider in bars, restaurants, and liquor stores. Upon evaluating the disappointing landscape of hard cider in the United States, Ross and Tyler have made it their goal to build New England's first and largest craft hard cider company, and restore hard cider to its rightful place in American culture. Where others have used juice from concentrate, "natural flavorings" and "essences", artificial sweeteners, and an endless list of excuses, Downeast Cider House has a firmly established policy of NO SHORTCUTS. No matter the cost to us, we are fully committed to using only fresh pressed juices and pure, natural ingredients in our cider. When it comes to flavor, there is no substitute for the best, and that is what we stand by. After starting in Waterville, Maine. Downeast Cider moved to The Birthplace of Johnny Appleseed, Leominster, Massachusetts. In February of 2013, the cider house relocated to Boston.

High Limb Original Hard Cider, The only cider currently in the lineup is our flagship cider. This original recipe focuses solely on the apple and nothing more. What sets this cider apart is that we use fresh, local apples from a farm we work with in Massachusetts. By starting our batches the day of pressing, we are able preserve the natural apple flavor that New Englanders love. This unfiltered cider maintains a full body that provides for a deliciously sweet and balanced cider. We hear all the time that it’s like “drinking a glass of fresh cider” and that’s how we know that we’re doing it right. Cheers to the original!
|Heirloom: Made from a fruity blend of traditional cider apples – Yarlington Mill, Esopus Spitzenburg, and Ashmead’s Kernel – this cider is full bodied and semi-sweet with a mild tannic finish and a light amber color.||Cidre Doux (5%abv) : Full-bodied, sweet, and intense with a great balance of tannins and fruit. ||“Apple Pommeau” (19.5% a.b.v.) - This sweet nectar is port-like in strength and has unmatched apple intensity. It’s a special blend (based on a traditional French tipple) of hard cider and apple brandy that is superb for slowly sipping over ice. Preferably by the side of a fire, in a comfy chair. OK, it’s true – we may have tried this a good few times.|
|Barrel-Aged Dry (6% abv) : Crisp, piercing acidity with fresh apple on the nose and light oak on the finish. ||Stars In A Bottle: This champagne style cider is made from a blend of one barrel of ice pressed cider, and one barrel of super special apples, including Golden Russet, Redfield, and Ashmead’s Kernel.

|Farmhouse Organic - A true blast from the past. Cider the way it was made centuries ago, just sweet cider that is allowed to wildly ferment on its own in oak barrels.||Organic Ice Cider-2013 very limited introduction, close to a dessert wine, a very unique, very flavorful sipping beverage; get out the snifters.||Sparkling Organic Hard Cider - We add a little of our own maple syrup at bottling (for the sugar) to reactivate the yeast. Once capped that sugar is fermented in the bottle and creates enough carbon dioxide to give the cider a light, natural sparkle. Very lightly sparkled!|
|Hopped Hard Cider- We use our own organic Goldings and Cascade hops to dry hop our cider. We simply add whole dried hops cones to the sweet cider and allow it to steep. Goldings and Cascade hops add a nice flowery aroma without the bittering of your stronger hops. Bottle conditioned - As with the sparkling hard cider, we add a little of our own maple syrup at bottling (for the sugar) to reactivate the yeast. Once capped that sugar is fermented in the bottle and creates enough carbon dioxide to give the cider a light, natural sparkle. Very lightly sparkled. ||Cyser- We add organic honey to sweet cider to enhance the starting sugar level, and thus the final alcohol level. We then let it ferment to dryness creating a traditional combination of mead and hard cider.||New England Hard Cider, Our N.E. style - We add organic brown sugar and organic raisins to ours creating something close to the first cider we ever had, and what we toasted with at our wedding 20+ years ago which was made by a local farmer. Being a stronger cider we let it ferment and age for months in oak barrels to let it mellow and take on character from the wood.|

Here at Martha's Vineyard Cider Co. we were tired of tasting the overly sweet, bland hard ciders out there. We wanted a different style – thirst-quenching after a long day, yet a robust flavor profile elevated to pair with our favorite seafood, meat, cheese, or dessert. So we created a cider that's dry, with a light golden color, full apple flavor, and an easy effervescence to amuse your palate. As one well-known local said, “this cider is crisp, refreshing, and it’s got a zip!” We couldn’t agree more. We grew up on Martha’s Vineyard. Boats are in our blood. Our family owns a shipyard here where we’ve built, repaired, and simply messed about in boats for three generations. We believe boats offer an escape, whether for a weekend or a lifetime. It is with this spirit that we took on a new adventure and started making cider we hope all will enjoy.

We seek out, rare, uncompromising apples that ferment out into bold flavors full of complexity, tannins, and acidity. We are in the process of growing a cider apple orchard on our farm here in Sherborn, carefully selecting apple cultivars for the specific traits we are looking for in a blend.
